Survey: Nearly half of married people don't know spouse's salary

(NBC) -

A new survey done by Fidelity suggests that more than 4 in 10 married people don't know how much money their spouse makes; according to their results, those people couldn't identify which salary range their spouse lands in - and 10% of those people were wrong by more than $25,000.

About 1,000 couples were surveyed, and researchers found the split was about equally men and women. The survey also suggests that people are less aware today than they were years ago. Fidelity completed the same survey two years ago, and found that 16% more people are wrong about their spouse's salary than 2 years ago.
